I sawed the logs to make every stick of wood for this little shed. It is 7×7. Southern yellow pine. I made everything on it except the fir 6 panel door and the asphalt shingles. Client was tickled! She wanted something like she has seen in Williamsburg, VA.

Great job! She’s going to have to keep her tools clean so they won’t look out of place. Cedar shingles would also look good and they aren’t hard to cut on a bandmill. Did you cut tapered boards for siding?

No taper just straight 5/8” thick by 7 1/4” = 6” exposure. I go for the more primative look. It is easier on my Nerves!

Very nice shed. As you will quickly find out, or may already know,... No matter what size of shed you build, they seem to shrink and you end up needing more and more space. ;-)

Enjoy!

Very handsome little shed. Why some opt for the plastic eyesores is beyond me when they could have something like this !

After I looked at your shed and BEFORE I read your comments I was saying to myself, “That looks very Williamsburgy”. Looks great.

That’s really pretty and quaint. I think it would add a nice spot of color to most any back yard. I think a nice addition to it would be a weather vane. Good job.
